Healthy, Happy Eating
Our research brings you the safe, nutritious, sustainable foods you need and enjoy.
Your Food Is Our Science
You may not think about how the food and beverages in your grocery cart got there. Fortunately, we do.
We evaluate and discover everything from breakfast meat to the next big thing in craft beer to ensure consumers have access to an abundant, safe, and delicious food supply.
We conduct research, work with manufacturers, and pass our knowledge along to the next generation of food industry leaders through a variety of centers, labs, and processing facilities in Raleigh and across the state.
